You can try tapping on the starter.I've had cars that the starter froze up on.If that works take your starter off & have a shop check it for you.

Its -12 ,whent to start my car and it turned over and stalled out imediatley, is my gas line frozen?


Yes, I would highly suspect (frozen) water in the fuel. Dumping a couple of bottles of heet (should be able to get at a gas station or auto parts store) in the fuel tank. This MAY work, but likely you will have to get your car towed to a warm shop. Then have them change the fuel filter. Whenever it gets real cold you could put heet in the tank as a preventative. Heet is the brand make of a alchohol gas deicer. By the way, i'm from Alaska. Were enjoying the warmest winter in years right now.

it very possible could be some water in the gas that you got, put at least 1 bottle of heet into the gas tank, this will remove the water, that you might have got in the gas, you can purchase the heet at walmart, or any auto part stores, hope that this has helped you.

I have a 2006 Suzuki Forenza. I stopped today to put gas in the car and as I was pulling out from the gas station, my check engine light came on and started blinking. I just had new plugs put in, new...


was the car running fine, before you put the new gas in the car, if the answer is yes, then , i would say , there is a chance that you could have got some water in your gas where ever you got it. " sometimes at gas stations, when the fuel runs low in their under ground tanks, they sweat and draw moisture, and then when a person pumps the gas , the water/ moisture goes into the customers gas tank, i would put 1-2 bottles of heet, into the gas tank to remove the water, that is if this is the case, after you do this, hope fully the engine will run fine, if it does not, then i would have someone to hook up a code tester, to the aldl link, to see what trouble codes have ben picked up by the computer, hopefully the problem will go away with the heet installed, hope that this information has helped you. you can buy the heet at walmart , or at a auto part store. p.s. try 1 bottle of heet first, and then if you need to add the 2nd bottle then you can, but see how it runs on only 1 bottle of heet first.

My car wont start in the cold


Hello,

There may be water mixed with your fuel. water + cold = frozen fuel. Get some HEET from a local gas station to remove water from your fuel during the cold months.


If your car is Diesel it maybe that the Glow Plugs are not working.


The majority of the time this is due to the "Cold Cranking Amps" in your battery. Most batteries are only good until it gets down to a certain temperature. After the temperature reaches or goes below the minimum temperature, the car isn't going to start. Generally speaking, the battery will tell you on it's sticker or label how many "Cold Cranking Amps" your battery has (aka CCA Rating), and what temperature is the minimum temperature the car will be able to start at. Most of the time, it's limited to 0*F.

Take care.

Car turns over but won't start


one thing you need to remember.... as it gets colder (that's not cold yet) the battery gets less efficient as the demand for more power increases with the starter. were you able to start it by boosting it.... also what weight motor oil is in it. 30 to 50 weight oil turns to the consistency of molasses in cold weather.
